You might recognize this dish from my Menu Monday.  It was a new recipe and I wanted to let you know how it turned out.

It was AMAZING!!!!  When my oldest daughter saw me take the foil off right before serving these were her exact words, "MMMM....What is THAT?!?"  I told it was supper and she was very excited.

Cheesy Potatoes and Smoked Sausage
Adapted From:  Angel's Homestead

10 medium potatoes (w or w/o skin)
2 links smoked sausage, chunked
1 package shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 stick butter (I used light butter)
garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place 2 tablespoons butter into a 9X13 pan andplace into the oven until butter is melted.

Peel or clean the potatoes and cut them into approx 2" chunks.  Place potatoes into pan with melted butter.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Cube the remaining butter on top of the potatoes and cover with foil.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove pan from oven.  Add sausage and stir to coat everything with the melted butter.  Replace foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Add the cheese to the potatoes and sausage and place back in oven for 5 minutes to melt cheese.

When cheese is nice and melty, stir gently.

Then go ahead and eat this yummy goodness!  Believe me, everyone will LOVE it!

Happy Full Plate Thursday!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) This looks yummy! I am a carbohydrate junkie and I love me some potatoes! I like the "all in one meal" idea too - less cleanup for me!

  2. Oh my gosh. This looks absolutely wonderful! I'm with your daughter "mmmmmm!"

  3. Definitely trying this tomorrow! yummy!!

  4. Hi Colletta,
    My "Honey Bunny" was looking over my shoulder when I pulled your post up and he said" when can I have this?"

  8. What size bag of cheese did you use? My stores have a small 8oz (I think) and a larger 16oz size. thanks

  9. have this in the oven now (at least the potatoes) LOL Hoping it comes out as yummy as your picture!!

  10. Made this for the 2nd time last night, but this time I left out ALL the butter!! I just sprayed some Pam on the bottom of the pan and over the potatoes. The first time I made it, it was just waaayyyy too greasy. My whole family loves this!!

  11. I added some broccoli and melted some cheese whiz and poured it over everything it was awesome!!!!!

  12. Got this recipe off Pinterest. We've made it several times and it's delicious! Thanks for sharing. :-D

  13. Omg! I make a version of this over the stove....but I cube the potatoes and cover with milk, season, add onions and let it cook down till the sauce is a cream. Then I brown the smoked sausage, add to the potatoes them top with cheese! The Best!!!
